Outside my window ... two birds are having a very loud conversation in my backyard.
I am thinking ... about how arbitrary life is.
I am thankful for ... my dad (and mom, too.) My kids, my cat, friends who genuinely care about me and my sanity.
From the kitchen ... the smell of the pizza I just cooked for tonight’s dinner. Sáin’s last class tonight ends at 7:00 so we won’t be home until 7:30 so dinner has to be quick and easy!
I am wearing ... jeans, a JDRF hoodie and skate shoes – I am so predictable.
I am creating ... an interesting childhood for my kids. I feel incredibly guilty about the lack of stability in their lives but they are both happy, intelligent, well behaved kids so I must be doing something right.
I am going ... to the karate school in about 45 minutes.
I am reading ... Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls Book 2, New Girl by Meg Cabot. Sáin and I have been reading the series together.
I am hoping ... for a new (good) job soon.
I am hearing ... Aidan shooting his Lego dinosaurs with his Nerf gun, Sáin playing her DS and Tennyson crunching his dry food.
Around the house ... there is too much stuff
One of my favorite things ... is Sáin’s Continuous Glucose Monitor. It is truly an amazing tool and worth all the insurance battles I fought/fight.
A few plans for the rest of the week ... regular karate class and demo team practice tonight. Karate picnic Saturday during the day and demo at the Kent International Festival in the evening with Sáin, Aidan and Sáin’s best friend, Hannah. BBQ with my niece, Amanda, and her amazing family whom I haven’t seen in 17 years on Sunday.
A picture to share ... Aidan’s friend Piper’s dad took some great pictures at Aidan’s party. In this one Aidan and his friend, Mason, are teaming up against their instructor, Chris in a wrestling match. Aidan is so happy!
